Refined white sugar, of course, has been processed using bone char to purify the white color; but other brands? And if it's not, what are some low or non-calorie vegan alternatives?

It's as vegan as any other thing that's been widely tested on animals.

I use stevia products myself. Won't go into the "splenda issues".

If you have check the other thread you started I said in there that brands such as Silver Spoon and Tate and Lyle are Vegan as UK sugar is NOT filtered through bone.

I dont know about that sorry.<br>
I buy Silver spoon or Tate and Lyle as they are widely available.<br><br>
If Splenda is a US brand, I would assume its not vegan...but I really do not know.
